I have a cd consisting of every recording ever made by the most popular group ever. The problem is it only plays on windows 95. The disc, when played in 95 opens like a duke box with indexes, song and LP titles and a easy to find system to choose records you want to listen to. I did once have it transferred to a disc that plays in XP, but only the songs and no titles or indexes and it is impossible to find a particular song with ease. Is there anyone who can transfer it to XP like for like, your reward, make as many copies as you like. Thank you.

Have you tried the original disc in the XP machine and running compatibility mode?

  1. Put disc in drive and close.
  2. Cancel any autorun dialogue (unless explore drive is an option in which case select this and skip step 3).
  3. Go to My computer and explore the CD drive.
  4. Find the autorun.inf file and open it with notepad/wordpad.
  5. The autorun file should give you a file name that it calls on (e.g. autorun.exe, setup.exe, start.exe etc).
  6. Locate this file on the CD and right click on it.
  7. Go to properties.
  8. On the compatibility tab use the drop down menu to select Windows 95.
  9. Make sure the 'run this program in compatibility mode for' check box is ticked, and click apply.

The file should now run in compatibility mode each time you put the disc in.
